The so-called canvas coat of Sir Hugh Willoughby

The dress collection of Nottingham Museums contains an intriguing and little-known piece of sixteenth century textile armour which has been on loan for over a hundred years, and yet not studied or published on during that time. It has previously been associated with Hugh Willoughby, the soldier and arctic explorer who lost his life at sea whilst attempting to find the Northeast passage in 1553. Ninya has been researching the garment to find out more about its function, history and association with Wollaton Hall and the Willoughbys.
